LIVE RUST put on a great show at The Stage in Mission. 3 fantastic sets - very professional and easy to work with - the crowd loved it and the dance floor was busy all night. Definitely a class act and I would highly recommend LIVE RUST for a great night of live music.

'Live Rust was great! They drew hundreds of people to our outdoor stage in Campbell River, and they delivered two solid sets and a well-deserved encore. And dancing? Lots of dancing! 
Thanks guys!"
...Jim Creighton, manager, Spirit Square' Campbell River


Hiring Live Rust was the most amazing experience!! The whole band was professional, talented and friendly. I had them come to a very remote location and be powered by generators and they were AWESOME!!! Couldn't be happier. They really cast some magic over our wedding. Truly unforgettable. Thanks so much for everything.

Sincerely, Dawny & Johnny xoxo


"You guys were easy to work with, low stage volume and were excellent performers to boot. Loved it!"
